Make lasting memories with every generation of your family on these extraordinary charters.
The Saronic Gulf – Greek Islands
With its short sailing legs and pretty villages to explore, the Saronic Gulf is ideal for a charter with children. Little ones will love to paddle in the clear shallow waters of Lepitsa Beach on the privately-owned Porto Heli, and some of the cleanest and most unspoilt beaches in Greece are to be found on Agistri. The enchanting island of Hydra is completely free of cars and even bicycles, meaning you can relax as you explore its winding lanes. Children will love the ancient amphitheatre at Epidaurus where they can stand in the middle of the stage and hear their voices echoing around the 4th century BC walls.
Costa Rica – Central America
From thrilling zip-line rides through the rainforest canopy and world-class surfing at the black sand beaches of Puerto Viejo, to scuba diving and horse riding, there’s no chance of teenagers being bored here. One of the most biodiverse counties in the world with astonishing wildlife, Costa Rica has 28 national parks in total, three of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. At Cocos Island – once a hideout for pirates – you’ll spot dolphins, hammerhead sharks, humpback whales and turtles. With many locations only accessible by boat, you’ll discover a plethora of extraordinary cruising destinations in near-total solitude.
Svalbard – Norway
Norway’s isolated Svalbard archipelago was, until recently, considered completely inaccessible to anyone other than scientists and documentary makers. Now opened up to expert superyacht charters, there is something for every generation in this extraordinary land of Northern Lights and midnight sun. Explore an abandoned Russian mining town or dash across vast open expanses by dog sled or snowmobile. Board a tender to get up close to grunting walrus colonies or kayak among the icebergs. The more adventurous can try their hand at tandem paragliding over the fjords, while the others take a gentler fishing trip on this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
